We would book the Serpina again and would recommend it to friends looking for this type of holiday.

There is a great menu at Serpina that should cater for most peoples tastes. Ozzy and Ali make gorgeous food that makes you want to eat in Serpina every day like we did. There is such a wide range of Turkish and European dishes available that you could try a different dish every day of your stay and be truly satisfied.
Serpina is ideally situated as it is just five minutes walk from all of the bars, restaurants and shops but just far enough away so you are not disturbed by constant noise. It is also ten minutes walk from the beach where you can enjoy water sports or just lounge around in the sun. Serpina is also only twenty minutes walk from the historical windmills that overlook the city and also the dome that gave Gumbet its name. This part of Gumbet is truly unspoilt and when you get to the top, you will be astounded by the views as you can see Gumbet bay on one side of the hill and Bodrum bay on the other. On a clear day, you can also see Kos.
And leaving the best until last, I would like to tell you how lovely the staff of the Serpina were. They truly did everything to make us happy and to ensure that we had a fantastic holiday. Ali, the owner of the hotel treats all of his staff members like his family and this really made us feel at home in the hotel. He always had time to sit and chat with us and went out of his way to accommodate us. He often brought his beautiful daughter to the hotel which added to the family atmosphere.
Dilek is a wonderful hostess, running the restaurant very efficiently while always having time to spend with everyone. She has time for all of the guests in the hotel and you will find she is always there if you need anything. Engin runs the bar and always has a smile on his face. Turkish nights are on Thursday where there is belly dancing, music by Ali and his friends and traditional Turkish dancing. But the highlight for us was when Engin lead the staff in a Turkish dance and made sure all of us were enjoying ourselves while teaching all of us how to dance to it. Levent works behind the bar also and always has a smile on his face too. There is a wide range of cocktails available that Levent makes perfectly. He always makes time for a chat no matter what time of day or night while constantly restocking the bar and making sure eveyrbody has a drink.
Abidin is always on hand to serve at the table and is always ready to crack a few jokes. He is an expert at balancing great service with friendly chat and always ensures everybody has everything they need. Ilhan works closely with Abidin in making sure you feel comfortable and happy all of the time. We enjoyed learning some of the Trukish language with Ilhan and he also made time to teach us the Turkish dancing along with Engin. When we went for breakfast Ilhan was there every morning with a smile on his face ready to greet everybody and ensure that we had eveyrthing we needed.
Adem, Matin and Umma were on reception and were there to greet us when we returned to the hotel day or night. They went out of their way to help us with any queries we had.
The staff of Serpina are the life and sould of the hotel and we will miss them alot.
I would thoroughly recommend Serpina to everyone of all ages as our party ranged from ages 21-58. It has something for everyone. I am really looking to going back next year.

We followed and the room was great. The thickest mattresses we had ever seen and a television and phone in the room.
The bathroom was also great, with a shower cubicle with solin plastis doors. A hair drier was also provided. During our stay, 14 nights, we got to know all the staff from the manager, Ali, Michael the bar manager cum entertainment supremo and the lovely lads and lasses of restaurant, bars and cleaners.
The staff were always ready to help if needed without being obtrusive. Every week there was a staff entertainment nigh which was hilarious. First class fun and some near proffessional music and dancing.
All the other guests voiced the opinions that it was the best hotel the had ever been to. We made more friendships than we had ever made before and like us most of the other guests will be back next September.
As I have said, the BEST holiday ever.
